Green glass bottle blown in a three-part mold in the form of a bust of Washington with a circular base with a pontil mark.
This is a twentieth-century facsimile of the Simon’s Centennial Bitters--a Washington figural bottle designed and patented by Bernard Simon of Scranton, Pennsylvania on December 14, 1875. This example is possibly a Clevenger pontiled reproduction.
